A week of links

Links this week:

  1. There are plenty of good looking MOOCs popping up. John Hawks has announced his MOOC Human Evolution: Past and Future, starting early 2014. Dan Ariely’s behavioural economics course kicked off a couple of weeks ago, and this course on social and economic networks by Matthew Jackson looks worth a look. I seem to be adopting a speed learning strategy for MOOCs - wait until all the material is up and then binge.

  2. How will the Flynn effect and the bright tax balance out? We’re looking OK until 2042.

  3. Slavery and capitalism.
